ACORE Statement on CLEAN Future Act
Statement From Gregory Wetstone, President and CEO of the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE):
“The CLEAN Future Act reflects the kind of comprehensive legislative approach we will need to start tackling the climate crisis. The inclusion of a federal high-penetration clean energy standard represents one of the most direct and reliable ways to ensure critical emissions reductions in the power sector. We’re also pleased to see a first-ever national policy on electric transmission so integral to the ongoing energy transition, along with a number of commonsense steps toward a 21st century Macro Grid that will deliver job growth and economic development, a cleaner environment and lower costs for consumers. We applaud the legislation’s support for domestic clean energy manufacturing, inclusive workforce development and equitable access to renewable power, and we look forward to working with Chairmen Pallone, Tonko and Rush on this important and timely initiative.”
Founded in 2001, the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE) is the nation’s premier pan-renewable organization uniting finance, policy and technology to accelerate the transition to a renewable energy economy. For more information, please visit www.acore.org.
